John,
I'm very sorry to hear about the passing of you son Grayson. I had the pleasure seeing you and meeting your amazing boys at the Annapolis Boat show many years ago. After viewing your photo's, I have to say, your family has been living a fabulous lifestyle and in many ways it was a blessing for your boys to spend so much time together. I'm sure Austin will be very determined to carry the torch for Grayson going forward. I send my deepest sympathies to you John and your lovely wife Kimberly, Austin and the rest of your extended family.
Sincerely,
Allan Stucki

Ken and I are so sad for your family. Grayson was a handsome young man and beautiful little boy. I know you will miss him terribly but he left wonderful memories that will keep you going and make you smile. I am sure he is watching over you all.

John,

I never had the pleasure of meeting your son, but having a daughter his age, it is unimaginable to me how much pain you, your better half and all of yours are and have been feeling. I am so very sorry for your loss and if there is any consolation in this, you know he is not feeling any pain what so ever in the wonderful place he is, right now.

Will see you tomorrow at the Friends gathering.

Peace, blessings and Strength...

Bill

To the Weiler Family-
I’m so sorry for the loss of Grayson. I was friends with him during the time he spent down in Texas. It’s been several years since he and I spoke, but I’ve always had a special place in my heart for him. Such a funny, entertaining guy! He always made everyone around him laugh. I’m going to miss that kid. It’s truly heartbreaking to hear that he passed. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I’m so sorry.
